The BA in Social Justice Studies helps prepare students in theories and practice of community engagement and social change. During their academic careers, SJUS students take courses from up to eleven departments within an interdisciplinary menu, network with nonprofit and advocacy leaders, perform community service, and complete an advanced practicum experience. During their first course, Introduction to Social Justice, they compile Personal Manifestos as a way of processing introductory material and setting a course for potential future work.

For more information about the Social Justice Studies Program, contact the Social Justice Coordinator, Dr. Myra Houser at houserm@obu.edu.
